Brazil makes open skies deals with UK, Netherlands and LuxembourgValor Econômico
Brazil has just reached its first three open-skies agreements with European countries. The National Civil Aviation Agency (Anac) has concluded negotiations with the UK, the Netherlands and Luxembourg to mutually eliminate flight limits between Brazilian airports and each of these countries. After seven years of resistance from the European Union to accept points deemed essential for Brazilian authorities, Anac then started direct negotiations with each EU member interested in bilateral agreements. The deals come at a time of increased flights. Norwegian Air, Europe's third-largest low-cost carrier, won approval last week to operate routes between Brazil and the UK.
